Browns have sights on Titans’ Johnson
CLEVELAND (AP) - Sooner or later, Chris Johnson will bust through the line, break a tackle, fake a defender out of his cleats and outrun everyone to the end zone.
It’s going to happen.
It’s just a matter of when, not if, Tennessee’s star running back gets loose.
“Let’s hope the time isn’t Sunday,” cracked Cleveland cornerback Sheldon Brown.
The Browns’ (2-1) main objective will be to stop Johnson when the Titans (2-1) visit Sunday looking to shift a running game that has thus far been revving in neutral through the season’s first three weeks.
Johnson, who sat out training camp in a contract dispute, has gained just 98 yards on 46 carries _ a jaw-dropping 2.1 yards per carry.
One of only six players in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards in a season, Johnson isn’t giving the Titans much of a return on the $53 million investment, including $30 million guaranteed, they gave him about a week before the season started.
He’s taken the money.
Now, it’s time to run.
“Everybody on offense has to pick their game up,” Johnson said.
To this point, Tennessee hasn’t been able to count on Johnson.
The tiny holes he slipped through in the past are currently sealed, and the former track star’s world-class speed isn’t quite at its usual warp levels.
